I am not sure this will apply to your 2001 but my 1996 owner's manual gave the following ranges:

4,300 LB front suspensions = 10 psi to 50 psi
5,000 LB front suspensions = 40 psi to 50 psi
5,300 LB front suspensions = 50 psi to 80 psi
5,500 LB front suspensions = 60 psi to 100 psi

For the proper adjustment it said to inflate the air bags to the maximum pressure for your vehicle, load the motor home and then reduce the air pressure as needed to level the motor home but don't reduce it below the minimum.

Here is the information that came with our 2003 Fiesta; Alignment Certificate air bag pressure should be 40-50 psi on 4,300 lb. axle, 50 psi on 5,000 lb. axle, 70psi on 5,300 lb. axle, 90 psi on 5,500 lb. axle, & 110 psi on 6,000 lb. axle.

Many thanks for your replies, I have now adjusted the PSI to 90 including the advice for Clay L, we are off to France for a week on Thursday to the 4 leg of the Europe Cup Water Ski Racing Championships, we will see how she handles now.

The front coil springs are usually wishy washy enough, so that even 90psi on a lighter front end works pretty well. Besides, they seem to lose a little air over time and I'd rather have a little more than less. I treat the tires the same way.
